Could This Be The New TWIN TOWERS – DeMarcus Boogie Cousins Trade to New Orleans


This could be Interesting!!!

It could be the new Twin Towers or it could be a National Disaster , we’ll see…

According to multiple reports and sources around the league, the Kings have officially traded away their franchise and superstar player, DeMarcus Cousins, to the New Orleans Pelicans.

He’ll now reunite with fellow Kentucky Wildcats legend, Anthony Davis, as the pair become an immediate summer free agency attraction. The 26-year-old is one year away from becoming an unrestricted free agent during the summer of 2018, as he’ll be looking to sign a super-max contract – upwards of $200 million. While Boogie has previously stated that he wanted to remain with the Kings and ink an extension, Sacramento was reluctant to fully invest in the star big man.

We’re just puzzled why they would announce the trade, just moments after All-Star Weekend – where he’s set to store his luggage for the next few years. This move now ensures the Brow’s transition back to his original position of the 4, as both star big men will be able to spread the court.

In our opinion, the team becomes worse for the 2017 season, after depleting their roster to land DeMarcus. Whether they’re able to attract key back-court free agents, will be their primary focus going forward, as the N.O. front office has made it clear that they’re in win-now mode.

New Orleans now has the best front-court tandem in the entire NBA, but sees their bench depleted with the move. They’ll obviously look to add pieces onto the team that now features Davis, Cousins and Jrue Holiday; who’s been able to maintain health and consistency throughout the year thus far.

College Basketball Player Punches Player Then Stomps Him During Game


NASHUA, N.H. — Police have charged two members of the Daniel Webster men’s basketball team after a fight during a game that required 25 officers to restore order.

Nashua authorities say guard Marquise Caudill assaulted a player from the opposing team Saturday and threatened an officer working a security detail who tried to stop him. They also said teammate Antwaun Boyd appeared to be inciting an already hostile crowd that had surrounded the officer.

Southern Vermont College was playing Daniel Webster, which forfeited the game. The official score was 2-0.

Caudill, 22, of Windsor, Connecticut, is being held on $50,000 cash bail on assault, criminal threatening and disorderly conduct charges. Boyd, 23, from Stamford, Connecticut, was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and released after bail was posted. It wasn’t immediately known if either is represented by a lawyer.

One other person, 43-year-old Elizabeth Morris of Malden, Massachusetts, also was charged in connection with the disturbance. She was released after bail was posted.

Fan Gets a TATTOO of Tom Brady’s Face on his BUTT

a New England Patriots fan celebrated his team’s recent Super Bowl win with a tattoo of Tom Brady…on his butt.

The tattooing of Brady’s face of the fan’s bottom occurred on the same day as the Patriots’ parade through Boston. The location was Boston Barber & Tattoo Co., which reportedly has had a lot of fans come through to get celebratory tattoos. But this one tattoo was different.

“He had decided the night before that he was getting this done,” Emily Arsenault, who works at the shop, told Boston.com. “It wasn’t just spur of the moment. We had quite a few obnoxious people coming in, intoxicated from the parade. But he was actually probably the most calm one out of all of them.”
So maybe this wasn’t spur of the moment as Arsenault claims. This fan really wanted to have Brady on his backside for eternity.

“He just came in and said, ‘I’m seeing if I could get a tattoo. I wanted to get a portrait of Tom Brady on my left butt-cheek,’” Arsenault said. “And we were just like, ‘OK, let’s do it.’”
Well then. That right there is dedication.

“I think he was up there for two to three hours getting it done,” Arsenault said.
The thing is, by getting it on his butt, the fan won’t be able to show it off unless mid-conversation he’s willing to drop his pants and moon those around him.

“We got a few pictures,” Arsenault said. “He was proud of it and showed it off. He wasn’t scared. He was like, ‘Oh, you want to take a picture of my butt? Go for it!’”

“There was a lot going on, people coming in and out trying to get Patriots tattoos,” Arsenault said. “He was kind of more of a priority because he was getting a cool tattoo.”
A tattoo of a city’s beloved quarterback on someone’s butt is now considered cool. You know that Billy Madison line about peeing in your pants? Well, if getting a tattoo of Tom Brady on your butt is cool, then this guy is Miles Davis.

“This one, by far, stands out the most in any category,” she said. “Any butt tattoo is going to stand out, but the fact that he got Tom Brady just makes it awesome.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis ARRESTED after Knocking Out 2 Guys


New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor by Pittsburgh police Thursday night stemming from his alleged involvement in a street altercation over the weekend that witnesses say left two men unconscious.

Police charged Revis with two felony counts of aggravated assault, one felony count each of robbery and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats.

Revis’ attorney, Blaine Jones, told ESPN that he was trying to reach the four-time All-Pro by phone Thursday night to arrange for him to surrender to police. It was unknown whether Revis had turned himself him.

The incident occurred at 2:43 a.m. ET Sunday in Pittsburgh’s popular South Side. Two men, ages 22 and 21, told police they were punched by Revis amid a verbal altercation. Witnesses said the two men were unconscious for 10 minutes, according to police.

Revis, who grew up in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, and starred at the University of Pittsburgh, required medical attention, Jones told ESPN. The attorney declined to reveal the nature and severity of any injuries.

A Jets spokesman said Thursday that the team was aware of the incident and had spoken to Revis. A source told ESPN’s Ed Werder that coach Todd Bowles was among the officials who discussed the incident with Revis.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league would look into the matter.

According to police, a 22-year-old man from Kittanning, Pennsylvania, was walking on a street when he spotted someone who resembled Revis. The man confronted Revis, who acknowledged his identity. At that point, the man began recording video on his cellphone and continued to follow the NFL star.

“At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video,” the police statement said.

According to the police statement, Revis tossed the cellphone on the street. A 21-year-old man from Ross Township, Pennsylvania, helped retrieve it. An argument ensued. An unidentified man came to help Revis. The other men told police they “were punched, then remember waking up to talk to police.”

Officers viewed the cellphone video at the scene and confirmed the person in it was Revis.

The men said they later took themselves to the hospital and that one was diagnosed with an orbital floor fracture.

Jones said Revis had returned home to Pittsburgh to visit family and friends and stopped by a location on the South Side that he is in the process of developing. Asked by reporters Thursday night why Revis was there at such a late hour, Jones said his client “didn’t want to be around a lot of people” while looking at the real estate investments and “kind of wanted to do it on his own terms.”

Revis was “physically assaulted while at the location by a group of at least five people,” Jones said.

The attorney said Revis was shoved by one of the men and attempted to walk away. The man who pushed Revis, he said, yelled at him. At that point, Revis knocked the cellphone out of the man’s hand, according to Jones.

“It’s my understanding that when Darrelle turned around he wasn’t sure whether it was a weapon or a phone,” Jones told reporters. “He didn’t know. He just knows he left, these guys were saying his name, he turns around and sees an object and he wasn’t sure what it was or whether he was going to get robbed or assaulted or what.

“He feared for his safety.”

Jones said Revis still hasn’t been afforded a chance to give a statement to police. He said multiple requests to view the cellphone video haven’t been granted.

“The bottom line is, Darrelle Revis was the victim in all of this,” Jones told ESPN in a phone interview. “He never went out to start a fight. He has stellar credibility.”

Revis, one of the NFL’s most accomplished players, is facing an uncertain future with the Jets. After a disappointing season — he called it the worst of his career — the 31-year-old Revis could be a salary-cap casualty in the coming weeks; he’s due a $2 million roster bonus on March 11, plus another $13 million in base salary (including $6 million guaranteed).

Revis acknowledged he reported to training camp last season out of shape, contributing to his slow start. He has vowed to rebound in 2017, even saying he’s willing to switch to safety.

The Jets have been tight-lipped about Revis’ status, even before last weekend’s incident.

Revis, who spent one year apiece with the Buccaneers and Patriots, made a triumphant return to the Jets in 2015, signing a five-year, $70 million contract. Since then, he has struggled to reach the standard he set from 2007 to ’11, when he was regarded as the best cornerback in the league.

NFL WR Arrested for Owing $400,000 in Back Child Support


METAIRIE, La. — Former Saints and Chargers receiver Robert Meachem began serving a 30-day jail sentence Monday after failing to pay nearly $400,000 in alimony and child support, according to court records in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.

Meachem, 32, can be released once $100,000 has been paid to his ex-wife, Andrea Rhodes. The couple divorced in 2014 and agreed to split custody of their two children.

The New Orleans Advocate reported that a judge ruled Meachem owed $588,000 and had paid only about $200,000. Meachem made more than $20 million in his eight-year career.

But according to the Advocate and NOLA.com, Meachem testified that he believed much of his money had been taken by a former officer of one of his charitable foundations and another assistant, since he didn’t pay enough attention to his bank balances.

Meachem said he had to borrow money from former NFL associates to get by.

According to NOLA.com, an attorney for Meachem’s ex-wife claimed in a previous hearing that Meachem secretly took millions out of their joint accounts. Meachem was also fined $500 for failing to produce an assistant in court to testify about his finances. A judge also denied Meachem’s request for a new trial.

Meachem, a first-round draft choice out of Tennessee in 2007, played a key role as a deep threat on the Saints’ 2009 Super Bowl championship team. He had 178 catches for 2,914 yards and 29 total touchdowns in his career — plus one touchdown in the playoffs.

Meachem signed a lucrative long-term deal with the Chargers in 2012 that included $14 million in guaranteed money, but was released after one disappointing season and returned to the Saints in 2013. Meachem last played in 2014.
